Default mailmerge

Since 2007 version of Word mailmerge has become more complicated rather than
less so. this is mainly because of the fields that are automatically given to
the address block, which are American. To by pass these can be complicated
and requires trial and error. Also if you put in a field at a time then you
have to insert and close each time - again time consuming. What I would very
much like to see is an alternative to the default American address fields
that the user can decide on for themselves. There are more users than
American and Microsoft needs to take account of this.

Default mailmerge

Frankly it is no more difficult than it has ever been, but if the
addressblock field doesn't work for you, don't use it. Insert the address
fields directly into your document in whatever format you like.

Also note the little down arrow at the side of the Insert Merge Field button
on the mailings tab, which makes inserting fields easier than the pop-up
dialog on the wizard.
